Hi guys,

I have two Dell Promotional Gift Cards. Each one is $200 and will expire in about 3 months. I googled and searched this forum to find out what I can do with them, and the links or suggestions were all out-dated. Raise.com used to accept it but not any more. So now my only hope is GiftCardSpread and Ebay.

GiftCardSpread customer support is really bad. It took weeks to get things moving. I finally got their approval to my price. And then no words from them for almost a week. I called their support many times, left messages for 3 times, and another two times they said someone will call me but nobody did. So disappointing.

If this one doesn't work, and selling them on ebay is too much hassle, what do you suggest me to do? Deeply appreciated.

The promo cards are the one that are one per order right?

Yes, you can only use one per order by default. But you can ask them to merge multiple cards into one for you, as long as the total is under $2,000. Or you can place the order over the phone, or maybe there are other ways to do it.

Thanks.

Have you considered buying a product Dell offers with the promo card and then selling the item?

I have 3 TVs and 2 laptops already. Really can't use more of those. Is there any other way to sell it or use it? How does ebay work in this case?

Would you mind sharing what you got for them? I have a small collection of them and I am out of things to do with them. I started looking at fitness bands the other night, because why not!

95% of Ebay buyers of these things WILL SCAM YOU. It is against rules to sell something on ebay electronically, and if you do not ship the actual cert you will 100% lose a case. Thiefs know this.

So even if I print out the card info and mail it to the buyers, is it still not safe? How should I protect myself? I saw Dell actually has an official shop on Ebay to sell gift cards.

I did a completed a search to see what my dollar amount had sold for.
My cards had a BIN price of $235.
Both sold within hours.

I was happy.

Hi Jedi5, I heard that some buyers will scam you. I also heard that Ebay doesn't allow all sellers to sell digital products. Could you tell me some tips how to do it right? Thank you so much!

This is how I protect myself. If they want the PIN will email it but I also mail it. Take a picture of the PIN before you mail it and make sure you mail with delivery confirmation. This protects you against scammers as you can prove you sent it and the code you sent was valid.

That doesnt protect anything. Scammers will simply say the code did not work when they received it. This happens all the time and almost always the scammer will get their money back.

OP is better off finding a coupon/giftcard site that actually buys these and then they sell them.
